I've been thinking for awhile that GPL's whole notion of "linking" is
archaic with modern software architectures. I don't see how it is really
tenable. LGPL seems only slightly better.
GPL with library exception seems reasonable, though. However, I'm no expert
with this, and it's not clear to me what substantive differences there are
between GPL with library exception and the Mozilla Public License (other
than the political manifesto that the former includes in its license).
